Surprise Box Challenge – Christmas Garland

Happy Friday, friends!!!

Today, I am so excited to be joining some sweet and talented blogging friends for a fun challenge, hosted by Terrie from Decorate and More With Tip.

For this challenge, we each sent and received a box of surprise items, that we then used to create something. I received my box from Tammy from Patina and Paint. Inside the box were wooden balls, wood slices and some candy. I LOVE candy, and, of course, was so excited to create something fun using these wooden pieces!!! Such a great surprise box! Thank you Tammy!!

I had a few ideas of what to make with these items. I finally decided on a Christmas garland/banner.

I painted each wood slice, as well as the wooden balls. The paint soaked into the raw wood slices, leaving just a hint of the white paint, which is exactly what I wanted. I wanted the paint soft and subtle.

Using a gold marker, I wrote “Christmas” on the wood slices. I also added some gold to each painted ball.

I then drilled holes through each piece, and strung it on a piece of twine.

I can’t wait to see what everyone received in their surprised boxes, and see what they have created with their items. I sent a surprise box to Shae from Sweet Southern Grace. I can’t wait to see what she has created!

Here is a list of links of all the bloggers that participated in this challenge. Be sure to check them out, there are some awesome ideas!!
